for some reason its not letting me upload the file, but basically all i want to do is when some selects an item from the drop down list then types how much in the quantity field, they will multiply in the amount field.

You can make 2-3 decimal fields:

1. 1st Decimal Field can be calculated - ReadOnly which displays the cost amount of the item

2. 2nd Decimal Field can be entered by user to provide the quantity it is needed

3. 3rd Decimal Field can be calculated - ReadOnly which displays the total cost amount of the item section.

4. for each item in the dropdownlist create a switch case statement to display the right amount for the item chosen

5. in the total amount field calculate the 2 other decimal fields together as follow: 1stField * 2ndField
